Red Gretchen / Press

“NOBODY EP review: "...The influences run the gamut from Jimi Hendrix and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band to Pavement and Folk Implosion and encompass rocking blues and classic rock to folk and 90's grunge..It is also stated that their lead guitarist, Ronnie Wheeler, is sort of a mad scientist as he expands their sound with alternative tuning, feedback and a bottle slide that generates some awesome effects and sounds. “Nobody and Me” sees Anne kicking the bottom into a mid-tempo late 60's underground sound with a retro-mod feel. “Darcy” is an alternative rocker with some interesting rhythm changes and cool guitar work. “Break It By” has a detectable British sound that one would have heard during the invasion back in the day. One the the best on this EP! “Crystal Moon” reflects on what's happening today in its makeup and composition, alternative radio would love this! “To Find Her” has a very simple folksy sound that is refreshing. “Jumper” is just totally incre”

“Red Gretchen made the 30 Most Promising Acts of 2014!”

“...It is refreshing to find bands that are not trying to be the “next big things,” but who are playing music simply for the love of playing original music live before a small audience of friends. Such is the case with Red Gretchen, a New York-based band which has recorded an album, Crystal Moon, and is trying to find its way into the local band circuit. First, let us quickly get past the novelty that the band is 75 percent female. Ronnie Lee Wheeler on lead guitar/vocals, Nancy Pollak on rhythm guitar/vocals, Anne Husick on bass, and Shauna Westgate on drums play simple pop songs often infused with a gritty, psychedelic guitar sound. Given the proper stage, the band may appeal to old-time fans of the Grateful Dead or modern fans of indie-rockers Yo la Tengo.”
